Sonic and Knuckles
The Chaos Emerald Thief is a complete story by Nigel Kitching, Bojan Djukac (misspelled "Djukic") and Elitta Fell. Thief Smirch has stolen the purple Chaos Emerald from the Floating Island and Knuckles has come to claim it back. However, so has Sonic and the heroes get in each other's way, allowing Smirch to escape. Their continued efforts to stop the thief end up just as frustratingly futile and a confrontation between them leads to Knuckles punching Sonic - right into Smirch!
